A penny saved.. is a tile floor - I knew even before we bought our house that I wanted to put a penny tile floor in somewhere.  As in real pennies.  We had seen a floor like this at the Standard Grill in New York and thought it was really pretty and on a small scale wouldn't be hard to fabricate.  So I saved a bunch of pennies, made a template, bought some mesh backing for mosaic tiles, glue that could hold metal and started making sheets of by tanya

Leaping Frog Tatting Shuttle    Sometime back we fitted new wooden blinds in our house and we ended up with slats left over. Since we often like to “re-purpose” things we find, Dave made some lightweight tatting shuttles out of the extra blinds.    This shuttle is 3 1/4 inches long by 1 1/8 inch wide and 1/8 inch thick, and has been adorned with a "Leaping Frog" using pyrography (burn etching). by Penny Charman

Mini Pizza Meatloaves - freezer meals.  These look great to have on hand or a quick meal or snack.  Fill the muffin tins almost full.  We like ours with pizza sauce on the side.  I've used different kinds of cheese on top.  These are always a hit in our house. by graciela

The "one chore per day" house cleaning list. "This is so doable and covers everything!" First, this is not "one" chore per day - some days it is two or three. Also, these "15-20 minute" chores are things like "Go through each room and put everything away" or deep cleaning everything in all of your bathrooms in under 30 minutes, or doing a week's worth of laundry (washed, dried, folded, and put away) in one day.

Chicken Swing! It's a great cheep<-(haha) way to keep birds from boredom! We put one up in each of our two coops after a tree fell down. We used some of the limbs and some rope to make a chicken swing. They really seem to like it. Sometimes, my bantam cochin Jill will sit up in it and go to sleep! by lara

Our new family organizational system. Magnetic wipe off boards from Walmart $2 a piece. Used vinyl machine to add names and the words to do and done. Took pictures of the chores we have at our house and added a magnetic to the back. Mail slots and Menu board are from Walmart too. I just added the vinyl wording to them. So nice to have a spot for the kids to put the mail when they bring it in. by siofra

I’ll be glad I pinned this some day! Change out your builder grade brass shower trim using Rustoleum’s Oil Rubbed spray paint … what would cost you $800 to replace, will only cost you $5 to paint. Holds up well with the water because it is indoor/outdoor paint….. (Pinner says: I also did this with my light fixtures when we moved into our house) @ Pin Your Home. by gayle
